Jerry Derck is a committed Christian and retired Human Resources executive, employed the last ten years as top Human Resources officer for IDEX Corporation, a global, N. Y. S. E. manufacturer. During his 35 years of management experience, he made difficult decisions to terminate hundreds of people, provided career counseling to many people both at work and church, and personally faced the trauma of having his job eliminated, as well as being downsized, demoted, and acquired.

The combination of his first-hand experience and his expertise as a small group Bible study leader provides unique insight into the Bible's answers to the challenging personal and spiritual issues faced during job loss and change.

Reviews - What do customers think about What's Next? God's Design For Job Change?

A Great Read  Oct 23, 2008
This book is a wonderful resource of encouragement... It is a must for anyone who is concerned about their future, or who comes in contact with one who is struggling. I've given away several to really hurting folks... and they've returned with a great postive outlook.
 
Much Needed Perspective on Job Change from HR Exec  Aug 17, 2005
Jerry Derck examines the career path ups and downs
that twelve Bible heroes experienced, and gives the reader a broad new perspective on what's next when your job situation changes.

Seasoned by his own professional experience and personal study, Derck compassionately addresses the stress and trauma that one often suffers during job transition, including the moral and spiritual challenges that arise.

Derck encourages the reader to work through immobilizing issues, such as rejection, bitterness, failure, loss of personal identity and discouragement confronted while waiting for new employment. Derck also helps readers find God's purpose and recognize His divine provision and preparation-all in the context of career change.

Quotes from Jerry Derck that helped me most:

"The last three decades of the twentieth century and first decade of the twenty-first century have been described as times of unprecedented job change and upheaval. But 30 years in HR at four companies convinced me that God consistently worked in my life to change me--for His plan, my good, and His glory - and that the Bible clearly speaks to the tough contemporary issues faced during job change."

"Job upheaval, as well as its impact on families and churches, will continue. That's why I wrote the book - to encourage people at a time when they often feel disconnected from God's Word, the church, and even God Himself. The book has become a key resource for a significant Job Transition ministry at our church in Charlotte and I have been humbled by the hunger of people for its content."

"The truths in this study will help provide confidence that God is present and active in your job transition and He has a specific design for the job search process, your new job, and for you."

"If you're thinking of a job change, or lost your job, or if you are the spouse, relative, pastor, or friend of a person going through a job change, this book can help you walk through that situation successfully. In addition, you may especially benefit from studying What's Next? with others in job transition."

Thanks, Jerry. This book is packed with good advice, and genuine principles that we can follow to find our place when we feel as if someone pulled the rug out from under us.
